The minutes, hours, and days after President John F. Kennedy was shot on November 22, 1963, provided no ready answers about what was going on, what would happen next, or what any of it meant. For millions of Americans transfixed by the incomparable breaking news, television—for the first time—emerged as a way to keep informed. But the journalists who brought the story to the television airwaves could only rely on their skill, their experience, and their stamina to make sense of what was, at the time, the biggest story of their lives. President Kennedy’s assassination was the first time such big breaking news was covered spontaneously—this book tells the stories of four men who were at the epicenter of it all. Bob Huffaker, Bill Mercer, George Phenix, and Wes Wise were among those responsible for covering the assassination and its aftermath for Dallas’s KRLD. These reporters fed news and footage to Walter Cronkite and all of the other CBS affiliates around the country.
When President John F. Kennedy was killed
in 1963, LIFE mobilized. That journalism and photojournalism, as well as the
stories behind them all, are revisited in this stunning, new publication. The
50th anniversary book features all 486 frames of the Zapruder film in print for
the first time; an essay by Alexandra Zapruder -- Abraham Zapruder's
granddaughter -- who writes for the first time about how the film affected her
family over the generations; and an essay by Dick Stolley on acquiring the
iconic film for LIFE. Zapruder and Stolley, along with contributing editor Jim
Baker and editorial director Bob Sullivan, will discuss their roles in putting
together this monumental, commemorative keepsake. This commemorative keepsake
also includes a foreword featuring a conversation with historian David
McCullough. Also included are personal stories about where they were when they
heard the news from Barbra Streisand, Maya Angelou, Jimmy Carter, Tony Bennett,
Willie Mays, Sergei Khrushchev, James Earl Jones, Tom Brokaw, Alec Baldwin,
Bill O'Reilly, and many more. The editors at LIFE vigorously carry on the
traditions of excellence in photography, journalism and storytelling of and
about our country and our world, which began with the founding of LIFE magazine
in 1936 by editor and publisher Henry R. Luce. LIFE has published books on a
broad range of subjects, including New York Times best-sellers One Nation and
The American Journey of Barack Obama.
The shots that killed President John F. Kennedy in November 1963 were fired from the sixth floor of a nondescript warehouse at the edge of Dealey Plaza in downtown Dallas. That floor in the Texas School Book Depository became a museum exhibit in 1989 and was designated part of a National Historic Landmark District in 1993. This book recounts the slow and painful process by which a city and a nation came to terms with its collective memory and its aftermath. Author Stephen Fagin is Associate Curator and Oral Historian at The Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza. He holds a Master of Arts in Museum Studies from the University of Oklahoma. Signed copies of Mr. Fagin's title are available online and in store.
The Kennedys believed that Jack's experience sailing Victura helped him survive the sinking of his PT boat during WWII. The images of Jack and Jackie on Victura's bow in the late 1950's helped define the winning Kennedy brand. Author and sailor James W. Graham explores the lasting influence that sailing had on JFK and the Kennedy siblings. He refers to his book as a true tale of how one 25-foot sailboat taught the Kennedys about life, family, leadership and winning.
John F. Kennedy Memorial Earrings in silver
John F. Kennedy died almost half a century ago—yet because of his extraordinary promise and untimely death, his star still resonates strongly. On the anniversary of the president’s assassination, celebrated political scientist and analyst Larry J. Sabato—himself a teenager in the early 1960s and inspired by JFK and his presidency—explores the fascinating and powerful influence he has had over five decades on the media, the general public, and especially on each of his nine presidential successors. In The Kennedy Half-Century, Sabato reexamines JFK’s assassination using heretofore unseen information to which he has had unique access, then documents the extraordinary effect the assassination has had on Americans of every modern generation through the most extensive survey ever undertaken on the public’s view of a historical figure. The full and fascinating results, gathered by the accomplished pollsters Peter Hart and Geoff Garin, paint a compelling portrait of the country a half-century after the epochal killing. Just as significantly, Sabato shows how JFK’s presidency has strongly influenced the policies and decisions—often in surprising ways—of every president since.
Published for the fiftieth anniversary of the assassination of John F. Kennedy and replete with many never-before-seen photographs, this posthumous memoir draws on previously unpublished oral histories, gallery talks, and speeches by Jacques Lowe, JFK’s official photographer. Lowe had unprecedented access to the President’s family and inner circle. Fifty years after the assassination of John F. Kennedy, it is finally possible to publish Lowe’s own, never-before-revealed account of his experiences during the Camelot years, supplemented with previously unseen material from his private files and the Kennedy Archives. Lowe captures the charisma of Kennedy relaxing at home with Jackie and daughter Caroline, engaging with the public on the campaign trail, at work in the White House, and as a leader on the world stage. Lowe’s 40,000 negatives of the Kennedy years were stored in the vaults of the World Trade Center. After 9/11—which came just months after Lowe’s death—it was learned that this priceless collection had been reduced to ashes, leaving Lowe’s original contact sheets as the only record of a most remarkable era.
